*Calling 9-1-1 on a cell phone in the south bay area may now connect you with the local 9-1-1 emergency dispatch center depending on the location of the tower picking up your cell phone signals. Until recently, all cell phone calls to 9-1-1 were forwarded to the California Highway Patrol dispatch center, which receives massive numbers of calls statewide. As a result, cell phone 9-1-1 callers frequently were put on hold for long periods. The new arrangement doesn't cover the entire area. In some places a cellphone call to 9-1-1 will still be forwarded to the California Highway Patrol dispatch center. Calling 408-277-8911 on a cell or landline phone connects directly to the San Jose emergency dispatch center.

When calling from a cell phone on or near a freeway or major highway, the call is routed to Highway Patrol in Vallejo. To get more immediate service, save the numbers for the cities you drive through in your phone and call them instead of calling 9-1-1.
